Early 50's cars make it around 1951-52 not the 1940's
Several bath tub Nash models including a long follow shot in th 2nd sequence lots of 50 Plymouths a 51 Buick is to be seen. Lots of
worn out looking pre-war vehicles. New models
with flashy designs were part of the thrill of the time. WOW all that prime real estate if the
people in those neighborhoods had known-They could
have been richer than Bob Hope who made an even more magnificent fortune buying that valley property! So many vacant lots!
